It seems that for the Pied Piper crew it is one step forward, two steps back. They are never quite able to succeed in the way they want to, however they never fail spectacularly. Many of the...

Movie Review: “The Intern”

Movie Review: “The Intern”

I’ve often wondered what I would do after I retired. Granted, I’m only 27 years old so I have quite the way to go. But I question what I would do with all that unconstructed time. Travel, work with charity, spend all day reading, or learn a new language are all on my short list. But what do you do when you’ve run out of stuff to do?  The Intern takes us on the adventure of what to do with yourself when you feel that you’ve already done everything. First of all, this cast is amazing.  I mean, really.  The chemistry between Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway is phenomenal.  It borders between the paternal aspect...

HBO Solidifies Monster Fall Lineup with Westworld, Divorce, Insecure & High Maintenance

HBO Solidifies Monster Fall Lineup with Westworld, Divorce, Insecure & High Maintenance

HBO has confirmed fall debuts for the new series WESTWORLD, DIVORCE, INSECURE and HIGH MAINTENANCE. We’d been waiting for confirmation on, particuarly the monster would-be hit that is Westworld. After years of delays, it will air this fall!  Exact dates to be determined. Here’s a little on each series. The one-hour drama series WESTWORLD (ten episodes) is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged. The cast includes...

HBO Films: All the Way – Review

HBO Films: All the Way – Review

Much like Steven Spielberg’s 2012 film Lincoln, HBO’s adaptation of the Broadway hit play All the Way focuses on the role a President plays in the advancement and expansion of human rights. It is a role often caught between the tide of human progress and the regressive Old Guard. How much can one person do, given the checks in the system? What is the best approach to push forward a party’s agenda? Films like Lincoln and All the Way highlight the struggle between the radicals and the moderates within a party, often chiding the latter for their impatience and lack of tact and pragmatism. Here, the President is Lyndon Baines...

Silicon Valley: “The Empty Chair”

Silicon Valley: “The Empty Chair”

It seems that for the Pied Piper crew it is one step forward, two steps back. They are never quite able to succeed in the way they want to, however they never fail spectacularly. Many of the events the last two episodes (check out last week’s review here) have been cyclical, things we’ve seen before, which is no doubt indicative of Mike Judge’s opinion of the tech world. Things happen in the same patterns constantly, however Judge’s story manages to make the cycle seem believable, and earned. “There is no CEO” Fresh off last episode’s cliffhanger this episode begins with Richard and the crew aimlessly...

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 5: “The Door”

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 5: “The Door”

This post contains HUGE SPOILERS. If you have not seen the latest episode of Game of Thrones, look away now! If you missed last weeks review, catch up here. So far this season has felt really odd in comparison to other seasons, everything from the writing style to the violence has felt softened and adapted for wider audiences. The language has become more casual, colloquial and “modern” which is a strong step away from the bleak and dark nature of the show and makes it more comparable to our world, that said, the violence has also taken an unwanted, sharp turn towards banal. I miss the good old days of peoples heads being...

ANY GIVEN WEDNESDAY WITH BILL SIMMONS Trailer Hits

ANY GIVEN WEDNESDAY WITH BILL SIMMONS Trailer Hits

HBO is ready for Bill Simmons, are we? The personality has been a part of the HBO stable, as reported, for a while now and his first contribution to the network is about to make its debut. It is ANY GIVEN WEDNESDAY debuting June 22. In his first promotional clip for the show he makes it clear what he believes in, at least for the moment, and gives us a sense of what topics he will explore for a half hour on Wednesday nights. Love him or hate him, agree or disagree with him the fact is he is on HBO now and not ESPN. You can be certain that he is going to be full of his own opinion and whether or not you can roll with that is up to the...

Cinemax Makes OUTCAST Episode One Available

Cinemax Makes OUTCAST Episode One Available

As we stated in a previous post Cinemax is debuting its supernatural show OUTCAST on June 3. The show got quick buzz as it offered up facts and a cast at both New York and San Diego’s Comic Con events in 2015. This year’s SWSX hosted the world premiere of OUTCAST’s premiere episode and off of all that buzz and attention the show, based on the Skybound/Image comic title by creator Robert Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta locked in a Season two commitment. Now Cinemax has been kind enough to open up the show’s first episode to non-subscribers.  The series follows Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by demonic possession all...

NAPOLEON Miniseries Not Dead As Fukunaga Circles To Direct

NAPOLEON Miniseries Not Dead As Fukunaga Circles To Direct

HBOWatch jumped on the news of a cinematic biography of Napoleon Bonaparte as soon as we heard. That was back in 2013 with Baz Luhrmann interested. Three years later and we are no closer to product, but now Cary Fukunaga is showing interest in picking up the mantle. We can only hope it is so. The project is still based on all of Stanley Kubrick’s research and rough script outlines. Steven Spielberg and Amblin Television are still behind it. It has been a slow progress, evidently, to sift through Kubrick’s notes and materials, and the production wants to very much hold fast to that existing research that is in the hands of Kubrick’s...

Senator Sanders to Appear on Real Time with Bill Maher

Senator Sanders to Appear on Real Time with Bill Maher

The Bernie revolution is in full swing this political season and fans of Bill Maher’s show have known him for much longer than most of his current supporters do. He’s been on the show 11 times and very few people could have guessed how close he’d be to the White House in 2016. So when Exstreamist.com noticed that he’d be appearing on Bill Maher’s show on May 27th, we knew it would be a reunion worth watching. We wanted to be sure, because Real Time often changes guests at the last minute (especially when they’re this BIG!) so we asked the Real Time team, who confirmed it for us: @HBOWatch That's the...

HBO’s HARD KNOCKS 2016 Drops Trailer Early

HBO’s HARD KNOCKS 2016 Drops Trailer Early

Boom! Did it drop fast or what? NFL Films and HBO Sports have their eyes trained on the L. A. Rams as they prepare to cover the team’s return to the gridiron this fall. They do so with the sport series HARD KNOCKS and the hype is building up already. Does it seem as though this team is made for this series. Of course the ball club in question has a big angle to play up in the upcoming eleventh season of the series: the football franchise is returning to southern California. From 1946 to 1994 the team called Los Angeles home. Its home field was the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and later the Anaheim Stadium. Then the Rams moved to Saint...

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 4: “The Book of the Stranger”

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 4: “The Book of the Stranger”

Check out last weeks review of Episode 3 here! SO many interesting twists and turns. People die. Siblings reunite. People start taking power back. People start taking a stand. Some people stop being a victim and start being a force to reckon with. Plans are formulated. Revelations are made. Jon and Sansa reunite. I won’t lie: I cried like a baby. This is something that I, a self-professed House Stark fan, have been waiting YEARS for. It didn’t disappoint. The years have not been kind to either Stark sibling, as they reminisce over the past and that fateful day King Robert Baratheon came to ask for their father to be the Hand of the...

Silicon Valley: “Maleant Data Systems Solutions”

Silicon Valley: “Maleant Data Systems Solutions”

Check out the review for last weeks episode here! When we last left our heroes of Pied Piper, their secret Skunkworks plan failed before it even got started. When Jack called the four into his office, I was fully expecting the hammer to crash down on their heads. It started that way, but as if by some miracle, Richard found his testicles that his doctor checked for earlier in the season. He explained that if order for Jack to get what he wants, he can’t fire Richard and his team. It may have been the first time he stood up for his project that resulted in it actually sticking. Even more surprising is that throughout the episode, he...
